Discover murder, marvels and mojitos in Canterbury

Canterbury, Kent

Explore the vibrant city of Canterbury, with its intriguing mix of dramatic history and cosmopolitan culture.

Use the spires of the world-famous cathedral to guide you through Canterbury's picturesque cobbled streets, and discover chic cocktail bars, luscious restaurants and exciting museums. Start at Canterbury Cathedral (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and stand where Thomas Becket was murdered. You can also pay your respects at tombs of Henry IV and The Black Prince.

Soak up more culture you can at the city's many museums & galleries, including hilarious The Canterbury Tales, The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge and the Roman Museum. 

Then soak up the atmosphere of the buzzing city centre with a guided river tour or a trip to the six-day-a-week farmers’ market and restaurant, The Goods Shed. In the evening, bohemian cocktail lounges, cosy pubs and industrial microbreweries await your pleasure.
